Yoshi (series)

Support

  1. Stooben Rooben (talk) - The article is large, and consists of detailed summaries of each game in the Yoshi series.
  2. Palkia47 (talk) - The info that was needed has been added. It now specifies what the Yoshi series is; gives more information on the games; and more; so, per Stoobs :)
  3. The info is clear, and the large detailed summaries have cleared up alot of questions I've had.Deserves to be featured! Fantastic Mr. L (talk)
  4. A very well-written article that includes all information necassary. White Knight (talk)
  5. Garlic Man (talk) - Per all :D.
  6. Luigi001 (talk) Per all. A near perfect example of an FA!

Oppose

  1. Time Questions: I think an article about a series of games needs more than just a description of each game. What about comparisons between the games, similarities, differences and so on? Don't get me wrong, the article is good, but it's faaar away from FA status. Good work on expanding the article! I think it should be expanded even more though. For example, the list of characters is a good idea, but not very helpful as it is. I suggest to explain every character's role in the Yoshi series. Also, I was thinking about a section about general elements in the Yoshi series that set it apart from other games - i.e. what is special to the series? Which items and objects appear throughout the series, and what is their role exactly? Sorry that I can't give examples, I've only played YI and YIDS, but I do think such a section would be helpful.

Comments

Is there something else the article is lacking? I'd be more than happy to add it. Stooben Rooben (talk) 09:17, 12 September 2008 (EDT)
Maybe there's something I'm not understanding of the actual defnition of "Spin-off", but Yoshi and Yoshi's Cookie were spin-offs to a yet non-existing series? Also, I'm somewhat confused when it says "First spin-off game in the Yoshi Series". Should it be "First spin-off game of the Yoshi Series"? We may need to clarify if we're talking about the Spin-off, or the Spin-Spin-off. There also are some past tense issues, but I'll start working on those. Nice expand, BTW. Garlic Man (talk)
Time Q: Thanks. I'll work on the character bio section ASAP. As for the unique elements to the series, I'll see what I can do, seeing as that I've only played YIDS. Garlic Man: I'm not entirely sure of the timeline with the spin-offs and main games; I pulled it from here, so that's why it's all off; I can easily fix it. Oh, and thanks.

Okay, I've added the character bios, and fixed the spin-off problem. Are they okay, or do they need more readjustment? Stooben Rooben (talk) 02:19, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

One thing I noticed is that there is no mention about the game Yoshi's Safari. If this is added then I will gladly support. White Knight (talk)

White Knight: About the trivia section – Yoshi's Cookie was released with Dr. Mario 64 on the GameCube, and there have been several Yoshi releases on the virtual console. As for your other oppositions: Bowser's section now mentions YTT, the character headers are bolded, with the {{Main}} template beneath them. A section on Yoshi's Safari has been added as well (thanks to Garlic Man). Stooben Rooben (talk)
Time Q: I'm wondering about the entire validity of your opposition right now. The character descriptions have been expanded, and a section dealing with general elements that are unique to the series has been created. Is there anything else you think needs improvement?
